Christmas Where the Gum Trees Grow – Australian Poem

CHRISTMAS WHERE THE GUM TREES GROW

Poem by (Val Donlon and Lesley Sabogal)

 Chorus: Christmas where the gum trees grow

A Koala eats a certain type of gum leaves

There is no frost and there is no snow

Christmas in Australia’s hot

Cold and frosty is what its not

**********

 When the bloom of the Jackaranda tree is here

Christmas time is near

 From England came our Christmas fare

 They even said what Santa should wear

 But here down under for summers cool

 Santa should dip in a swimming pool

***********

Chorus: Christmas where the gum trees grow 

There is no frost and there is no snow

 Christmas in Australia’s hot Cold 

and frosty is what its not

*************

 When the bloom of the Jackaranda tree is here

 Christmas time is near

 Santa rides in a sleigh on snow

But down here where the gum trees grow

 Santa should wear some water ski’s

And glide around Australia with ease

**************

Chorus:  Christmas where the gum trees grow

 There is no frost and there is no snow 

Christmas in Australia’s hot 

Cold and frosty is what its not 

When the bloom of the Jackaranda tree is here

 Christmas time is near

 To ride around the bush where its dry

To cart all the presents piled so high

 A red nosed reindeer would never do

 Santa should jump on a kangaroo

Chorus: Christmas where the gum trees grow 

There is no frost and there is no snow 

Christmas in Australia’s hot 

Cold and frosty is what its not 

When the bloom of the Jackaranda tree is here

Christmas time is near

“I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus” words for Kids

I Saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus,
Underneath the misletoe last night!

She didn’t see me creep,
Down stairs to have a peep!
She thought that I was tucked up
In my bedroom fast asleep.

Then I saw Mommy tickle Santa Claus,
Underneath his beard so snowy white!

Oh, what a laugh it would have been,
If Daddy had only seen,
Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night!
